Then refer to page one on how to cull out the win-10 updates before they install which is the preferred way,

Seriously consider buying a new ssd to install win-7 on you will not regret a ssd it's the single best performance upgrade for a old machine or new machine for that matter
I can do a clean install to factory default..But are you saying get a new ssd (harddrive) I'm not sure what ssd means..

Hi,
Yes ssd is a solid state drive
But if you're referring to using a factory system restore then no because that is your only installation media choice now

OK I'll look into a ssd..

I have all the O/S disc's, so I'm ok there..

I thought there was a restore to factory default in the menu..

Well a factory restore partition would be seen in disk management
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

They seldom work so a good practice is to be prepared to have a clean install media available if needed

If you have one do a clean install and avoid all of the manufacture crapware prepackaged with the unit

Crucial BX100 model ssd's are pretty reasonable and very good I have several MX100 models and they are too very good but I believe the BX is a little better,
Well worth it,

I always remove the crap ware before going back online..

I was also wondering if I should just let Win. 10 install, I'd have 30 days to revert back, and Microsoft, would do a clean install of Win. 7

Don't hard drives have to be the same as what is installed. Mine shows as 3.0 GB. I'm not all that computer savvy, enough to maybe save my behind, doing little stuff. I have installed hard drives and blower fans added memory..

You certainly could just go with the flow on installing 10 since this install is a factory install that came with the computer

And you have other clean install media disk to do a win-7 install later

The ssd suggestion was just that = a suggestion for better long term performance gains if doing a clean install

Richmond is not too far away
Yep Sherlock's pub is my favorite

Let us know how the upgrade goes if you go that direction which isn't a bad idea at this point
After the upgrade you can clean install 10 too
Or skip the wasted time waiting and do it now,

Lastest is, I did updates had one for Microsoft Securities and Skype, so took a chance and did the install, Windows 10 appeared once more, so I thought let it install, well news is it installed the two updates and "no Win.10"

So by following all the instructions here, it worked..

Thanks for all the help you guys..

My stepson use to live by the White Oaks Mall, we could walk there from his place, then he bought a huge place in Richmond, that some dragster use to own..Has a huge pole barn insulated with a couple of car lifts installed, his son loves that..
